Best CD of recent times purchased
Masterplan - Time To Be King is a good return with the original singer (Jorn Lande) but being a Glenn Hughes fan I prefer Black Country Communion - Black Country Communion (which also features Joe Bonamassa, Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian).
Best CD from ages past purchased
Madness – One Step Beyond 1979 (One Step Beyond, My Girl, Night Boat to Cairo, The Prince, Bed and Breakfast Man, Madness)
Madness – Absolutely 1980 (Baggy Trousers, Embarrassment, Return of the Los Palmas 7)
Madness – 7 1981 (Cardiac Arrest, Shut Up, Grey Day)
Madness – The Rise & Fall 1982 (Tomorrow's (Just Another Day), Our House)
Madness – Mad Not Mad 1985 (Yesterday's Men, Uncle Sam)
Madness - Wonderful 1999 (Lovestruck, Johnny the Horse, Drip Fed Fred)
Madness – One Step Beyond has more songs I like and is a better album as a whole but Madness – 7 1981 does have some of my fave faves on there.
